Echishield™ is supported by its own pre-clinical and clinical data and was proven to contribute to the treatment of common colds and flu,
mainly by immune stimulation.

Proprietary clinical studies

Preparations from Echinacea purpurea are well documented for their immunostimulant properties and mainly used for the prevention and treatment of upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs). The aim of this study was to prove the stimulating effect of the oral consumption of Echishield™ on human immunity. F. Fujii et al. Pharmacometrics, 2011

Evidence of specific bioactivity of the cold pressed juice of freshly harvested blooming flowers of Echinacea purpurea preparation has been reported previously: induction of the unspecific immune response by human macrophages, and improvement of immunological parameters, especially T cell-related immunity, in healthy persons suffering from fatigue as an indicator of reduced immunity. The present study investigated the protective effect of Echishield™ against stress-induced immunosuppression in restraint-stressed mice, an acknowledged model to induce immunological stress-related changes. S. Park et al. JMF, 2017

Stimulation of the innate immune system may provide an early defense against upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs). The objective of this study was to determine whether Echinacea purpurea along with micronutrients might alleviate COPD exacerbations caused by acute URTI. F. Isbaniah et al. JCPT, 2011

Story

Traditional use of Echinacea

Echinacea is a traditional medicine of the Native Americans.

It was used as a remedy for more ailments than any other plant and to treat a wide variety of disorders such as feverish diseases, sore throat, to support the healing of wounds, and more.

Echinacea has been known for years to support healthy immune function in adults, elderly, athletes and other populations, who are seeking a better lifestyle.

Supporting immune health

  • The immune system is a network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to defend the body against attacks by “foreign” invaders.
  • Our bodies are exposed daily to attacks on the immune system. From being exposed to co-workers and other people who are not in perfect health to foods prepared by poor hygiene – a strong immune system is an essential component of healthy living.
  • The active constituents of Echinacea may strengthen or stimulate the immune response as soon as they meet with foreign invaders, by interacting with various cells of the immune system.

Frutarom is ready to assist, by offering a unique solution to support immune health and to give the extra edge that is needed from time to time.

Echinacea Effects on Immune System Activity

Cold fresh pressed juice of Echinacea purpurea to support the immune system

The cold fresh pressed juice of Echinacea purpurea is known to stimulate macrophages and other cells of the innate immune system, causing them to become activated and release cytokines, which may:

  • Enhance the early phase of the immune response
  • Improve general immune health
  • Accelerate the adaptive immune response
  • Inhibit viral replication
  • Stimulate the innate immune system: white blood cells body temprature
